Enjoyed the prix fixe menu - excellent value with range of choices - all of which were delicious. Service was terrific - friendly and knowledgeable about wine pairings. Would return any time.

Amazing food at this restaurant! We were lucky enough to be offered the fixed price menu tonight. The choice and quality of the food and wine were brilliant. Couldn’t fault it or the service. Thank you!

All the best a restaurant can offer! Innovatively designed menu, and exceptionally executed plates did not disappoint. Waitstaff (Brooke) was informed, warm, funny and capable. Atmosphere is clean white table clothes and warm low lighting but not so formal that it makes you uncomfortable. We...had the seafood tower for 2 and it was fresh, robust and varied. Cocktails (Firecracker Margaritas) were beautifully balanced and unique. Lemon Tart with Creme Fraiche ice cream was a delightful finish. This is one of our visits to a Toptable restaurant - Marilena in Victoria also wonderful - and this group have found a way to sustain a level of service, food quality and execution that will have us searching out their restaurants whenever we travel. Thanks for another great meal, Araxi!More

The fixe prix menu that is offered Sunday through Thursday is a great value! The service and food were perfection and the attention to detail didn't go unnoticed.

Awesome dinner with very good service and excellent food. Took advantage of the spring shoulder season four course dinner for $43.

We were intrigued by the fixed price 4 course menu for $43pp. and figured we weren’t over hungry, so thought it would be suitable. What an amazing surprise. The food was absolutely delicious. The service fabulous. honestly, it was our best meal in Whistler. I...almost felt guilty when we got the bill, it seemed so little for what we got. Roast carrot soup, grilled asparagus salad with crispy egg, HALIBUT with clams mussels and Black Forest dessert! What $43? Hubby had fois gras s his primo (for a $9 surcharge ), and lamb loin which was perfectly cooked. We went to one of their sister-restaurants in Vancouver before we arrived here and paid four times the price and did not enjoy it as much. My only criticism is, without consideration for the deal there is a lack of reasonably priced wine, ie. few 5oz glasses under $20,… we ordered a half bottle of Kim Crawford for $33 which was pretty much a stand alone cheap option. I would return to here, (fixed price or not), as it was perfect.More

We had a wonderful time dining at Araxi! While Whistler Village offers several dining options (and many are quite pricey), Araxi was our favorite meal. We particularly enjoyed the oyster selection, gnocchi and beef tartare appetizers, and the risotto main course. Overall, it was a...really excellent meal and the perfect was to end our trip to Whistler.More

Firstly beyond the food we had an excellent & professional waitress in Andrea who did her role perfectly and added to a perfect experience. Thank you again Andrea. We had the $43 fixed price 4 course menu and I complimented this the $43 wine matching...wine menu which was not only well chosen but explained as to the reasons why it was chosen to match the dish by Andrea. Now every course of the food was perfect I went for the Tomato soup , beet salad , lamb belly and petit fours Each was accompanied by a specific wine which is shown on the menu. The four of us all thought the ambience , service , quality of the food & wine was perfect. Definitely one of if not the best restaurant on Whistler centre. Hope we get to visit again one day in the futureMore

Love the spring and fall specials. The food, as usual, was excellent with a good variety of choices for all the courses and the soup starter was delicious. I had the duck and the fat was well rendered with crispy skin and pink duck. The...service was attentive and the wine pairing was perfect.More

Araxi is our favorite Whistler restaurant. We have dined here for decades, and have been amazed how the restaurant has maintained the quality of staff and food for over 40 years My most recent trip was for some late Spring skiing and bear photography. What...a treat to have long time employee Andrea again provide outstanding service. Oysters, as always, were outstanding. The branzino was exceptional. There is an excellent wine selection. If you want a delicious meal served by professional and personable staff, head to Araxi. We will definitely be back on future Whistler outings.More

This restaurant has it all - an elegant yet welcoming ambiance, excellent service and fantastic food! The cuisine is creative and surprising without being too fussy. Everything was delicious, from the smoked tomato soup to the strawberry rhubarb cheesecake. We were delighted to take advantage...of the prix fixe menu - a real bargain!More

Most countries do not celebrate foreign holidays. Just as it is unlikely to find a Thanksgiving dinner in the US on the Canadian holiday, the same is true in reverse.
